HUNTER'S ALERT again has shown it can get the job done. A.B.307, a HUNTER'S ALERT sponsored bill, was recently signed by Governor Miller. It is a giant step forward in the effort to improve hunting in our state. A.B.307 will add another sportsman to the Wildlife Commission. Even more important is that the five sportsman representatives must have held a Nevada hunting, fishing, or combination license for three of the four prior years as a prerequisite. Other parts of the bill will help sportsmen in our state. We did not get everything that we wanted but you never do. What we did get was a great starting point.

This bill was opposed by Nevada Division of Wildlife, the Wildlife Commission, and former Wildlife commissioner Tina Nappe. You remember Tina Nappe. While serving on the Wildlife Commission, she made statements like, "If deer numbers are down, maybe we shouldn't have a deer season." And, "If ducks are hard to recognize, maybe we should open the season at noon." But worst of all was her statement at the February, 1993 Wildlife Commission meeting that "Basically, a lot of people say that the sportsmen pay for this agency (Nevada Division of Wildlife). In effect, they don't. The animals underwrite this agency through their death!" We were very disappointed that the Nevada Division of Wildlife opposed this bill. We thought they worked for the sportsmen. Yet they opposed this bill in spite of the fact that it was strongly supported by every major sportsmen's group in the state.

We apologize for not getting our newsletter out sooner. Since January, we have concentrated our efforts on the legislative session. The reason HUNTER'S ALERT was formed was to help improve hunting in our state. We realized that to do this, we would have to become politically active and seek changes at the legislature. The Nevada Division of Wildlife and the Wildlife Commission should be responsible for doing this but unfortunately they haven't taken that responsibility.

It appears that future wild life commissioners will have some outdoor experience before they are appointed to the Wildlife Commission, This is a direct result of the passage of A.B.307. HUNTER'S ALERT will keep you updated on the new commissioners and their qualifications.

BANQUET REVIEW:

Written by Hunters Alert

HUNTER'S ALERT held its third annual banquet/auction at Arizona Charlie's on June 2, 1995. It was an overwhelming success. Senator Jack Regan and Assemblyman Mike Schneider took time from their hectic schedules at the legislature to attend our banquet. Rumor has it that Mike may run against O.C.Lee for that senate seat. That would certainly be good news for sportsmen. Tommy Ford of Ford Contracting was the evening’s guest speaker. Tommy has been a staunch supporter of HUNTER'S ALERT since its infancy and his words of encouragement were warmly received.

'From all indications it appears that our banquets will continue to get bigger and better every year thanks to the singular efforts of John Connot, our dedicated banquet chairman. John works throughout the year to insure the total success of our only fund-raising event. If it weren't for John, there wouldn't be a banquet!

This year, Roger Marshall jumped right in and contributed his time and efforts to the cause, seeking raffle and auction items from local businesses. Roger's contribution is sincerely appreciated.

Morse Arberry to Willie Molini, "...You're very fortunate because these guys (sportsmen) carry guns legally. And if you were in my district, gang members would kill you by now."

I here are 18 western states which make up the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. In 1994 the average cost for residents to hunt deer in their respective states or provinces was $24.25. In Nevada it was $45.50, almost double. Next year, your hunting license will increase by $3.00. There are many other hunting and fishing license increases in A.B.212. These increases were needed to keep Nevada Division of Wildlife afloat because of years of mismanagement, not the Mother Nature excuses that Nevada Division of Wildlife has been using for the past decade. These increases will do nothing to implement new hunting and fishing programs in our state.
